Wine of the Week AU

Craiglee Shiraz 2014, Sunbury, AUD $59

This is a classic fragrant, peppery, medium-bodied Craiglee shiraz. Oak is tucked out of view. It’s tight, firm and texturally refined in the mouth, with beautiful balance and style. An elegant shiraz whose track-record indicates it will drink well over many years. (Screwcap)
